If you live or do business in King County and outside a city or town, King County is your local government.

The county maintains county roads and bridges, issues permits, manages land use planning, and provides many other services to unincorporated areas—which are grouped into seven Community Service Areas. King County Local Services is here to help connect you with these services. Our goal is to make it easy for you to find what you need, do what you need to do, and tell us what you think.

Everyone in the unincorporated parts of King County should have the opportunity for meaningful involvement in the decisions that affect their communities.
